Great food and good vibes for a good price with social responsibility. They do not use plastic straws and even reuse plastic bottles and turn them into rooms and they do community work regularly.

A place I call "my home" in Malapascua Island. An environment friendly place, they teach kids how to play instruments and even pay for their school bills, and they treat each other as family - reason ...why good karma is spreading all over the place. It has a very good view of the sunset while sitting on the roof top. Chill place in the hammock area while watching the sky, ohhh those starry quiet nights are bliss. Don't even ask me about their food - one of the best in the Island (Vegetarian and Vegan).
Visit VillaSandra and feel it yourself. :)

This is the best backpacker hostel in Malapascua Island! The place is super chill and clean. The staff is absolutely welcoming and courteous and hospitable. And the Vegetarian Restaurant is one of the... best I have ever visited! All of their food on the menu is a must-try! I will be going back and stay here again! See More

I have been backpacking for a while in and out of philippines and i mostly have great experiences with hostels. I can say that hostel is no longer a place but a culture. I have read great comments abo...ut the experience most foreigners have while staying at this place. Funny thing is, all of these comments are nice but got to experience the opposite while i was there. Maybe we came in at a bad time or maybe were not foreigners so we dont get the same experience. It could have been better if they were a bit less cocky, for the lack of better term and then made us feel as if theyre doing us a favor for letting us stay. Overall i will give 3 stars to be fair since the place is very relaxed and breezy.. See More

One of the BEST guesthouses we've ever been!
The place is so beautiful with chill regay music all day.
The rooms are nice and the shared bathroom are not bad at all! (First time ever that we were in a... place with shared bathrooms).

The restaurant is great with lots of good food (even tho it's a veggie restaurant and we are not veggies).
The staff is so nice, kind and helpful!

Thank you very much for great staying!!

The chillest place in Malapascua!

Staff and owners are very accomodating and hospitable.They will take care of all your needs from beginning to end of your stay! We were even able to take a shower a...fter we checked out!

Its basically the place you would want to stay if you want to experience what it is to live in an island. Its cheap and the island Vibe is just there!

Awesome awesome awesome!! Will definitely stay here again when we go back and will also share it to our friends!

DON'T PANIC, ITS ORGANIC!!!

Villa Sandra Guesthouse added 45 new photos to the album: Carnaza island trip — at Carnaza Island.

Our awesome sleepover boat trip to Carnaza island!
Snorkeling, watching the sunset from the cliff, barbecue in twilight, guitar and drum circle around the bonfire, playing with the glowing plankton, sleeping under the stars and being woken up by the Sun.
Having breakfast in the morning and even more snorkeling before returning home...
Thank you everyone for coming and making this trip incredible!
By the way, we have decided that from now we will do this trip every full moon in high season! You can make your reservations at Villa Sandra!

We are doing a Boat Trip to beautiful, non-touristy, secluded Carnaza island, about a 1.5 hour away from Malapascua on Friday, 8th December!!
We will spend the night there and come back the next day, around noon.
The schedule:
8th December
1:30 pm - meeting at Villa Sandra Guesthouse...
2:00 pm - taking the boat to Carnaza
2 - 7 pm - free time with games
7:00 pm - dinner
7 - bonfire, acoustic music, tribal drum circle

9th December:
7:00 am - breakfast
7:30 am - boat and snorkeling tour around Carnaza island, shark spotting at Shark Point, snorkeling at "Heart Island"
10:00 am - leave Carnaza
11:30/12:00 - arrive back to Malapascua

Price: 1500 peso (1300 peso for people who don't wish to drink from the alcohol we bring!)
Price includes: dinner (veggie noddles and BBQ veggie&mushroom and rice, boiled sweet corn tubes) and breakfast (sweet sticky rice and native herbal tea) on the island, yoga mats/native mats for sleeping, blankets, homemade coconut wine for the nighttime, snorkeling gear (mask and snorkel), coconuts, and the famous Villa Sandra organic juice.
This is a zero-waste event!! We will not use any disposable plastics, we will eat and drink from coconut shells and banana leaves. As close to Mother Nature as possible! Don't panic, it's organic!
We will sleep under the (hopefully) starry sky, but don't worry - if it rains, we sleep on the boat

Warning, our SPACES ARE LIMITED! Only 12 people can come on this trip. This is not a regular trip, we only do this a few times a year! So hurry up and come sign up in Villa Sandra Guesthouse AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

Our new guesthouse building, which we've been working on for months and months, is finally finished, and that's a perfect reason to celebrate!

At 4 pm, the local priest will come and bless the building. We will prepare a delicious treat, sweet sticky rice, which we'll give free to those who attend the blessing ceremony.

Later on, from 7 pm we'll have several performances:

...

Jane the Magician - card tricks and games - free Villa Sandra T-Shirt to those who can solve the games!
Tribal Jamming with Rasta Marvs
